Let us know when the outrage over Michelle Obama wearing really expensive sneakers to help raise awareness about a food bank kicks in.
Fashionable First Lady Michelle Obama helps the poor in $540 sneakers https://t.co/MOGeKmGwhG

From the LA Times:
First Lady Michelle Obama, who’s become quite the fashion role model with her J.Crew wear and buff-arm-spotlighting sleeveless frocks, is under scrutiny for what she wore on her feet the other day.
They’re trendy Lanvin sneakers. Which look really nice and comfy and all. Trouble is, they cost $540. If you can find a pair anywhere.
And, of course, if you’ve got $540, plus — what? — 9 or 10% tax in some places. Which seems like a lot for two shoes not guaranteed to benefit your jump shot.
The other trouble is that — wait for it — she wore them to a poverty event, a Capitol Area Food Bank for Feeding America to provide much appreciated help and publicity to benefit the food bank.
But she CARES SO MUCH.
Wonder if she knows how many people the cost of her sneakers could actually feed?
I’d rather have someone genuine helping me in expensive trainers than a trophy wife in a $39 coat that couldn’t care less…

And exactly how did she help them? Hang on a second. Let me go grab some popcorn.

Narrator: She didn’t.
That pales in comparison to what it cost taxpayers to keep Melania and Baron in NYC because of his school plans……or how much they spend every week at Mar-a-largo

Did we already say, ‘These people?’
Oh, well, we’ll say it again.
Clearly a slow news day at Fox. Why are you even tweeting this? Was she supposed to have goodwill garb on? What are you wearing today Laura besides a necklace with @AnnCoulters blood in a vile like Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie circa 2001..

The irony of the Left talking about a slow news day when idiots in the traditional media write about what sort of salad dressing Trump had at lunch.
No, we’re not making this up.
I don't care about the cost of her clothes. What I care about is she went to see what happened. More than I can say of the last several administrations that led us to where we are today.

That’s the bigger piece of the story that the Left seems all too happy to leave out, that Melania actually WENT to a detention center. Michelle didn’t go and Nancy Pelosi herself said we shouldn’t politicize them.
It’s all just a lot of hypocritical noise that does nothing to help families at the border.
Sort of like how Michelle showing up at a food bank doesn’t really feed the poor.
But at least she was wearing nice sneakers, right?
